Trocadero: If it ain't Del Toro, I don't give a shiat. Pacific Rim NAILED it. I still can't believe Adam farking Sandler beat out Pacific Rim.


This. Pacific Rim was our giant monster movie - the movie '98 Godzilla, King Kong, and Cloverfield to be. PR is probably one of my 10 favorite movies of all time.

ZeroCorpse: Goddammit, they Just. Don't. F♥cking. Get it.  Do they?

This is clearly going to be yet another Man versus Disaster/Monster movie. It's humanity fighting against Godzilla and they're treating Godzilla as a natural disaster yet again.

But the appeal of Godzilla movies is not "giant monster destroys city and is repelled by clever humans" -- It was NEVER that. It was "Godzilla gets in a fight with another giant monster, and together they destroy the city until one is defeated and the other leaves town."

The appeal of Godzilla is the kaiju battles, not the goddamn military shooting shiat at a giant monster while some subplot with characters we're supposed to love plods onward showing how devastated they are by the destruction until one of them comes up with a Hail Mary plan that drives the monster away/destroys the monster.

Yes, the first Godzilla was like that... In 1954 when Godzilla was analogous to the atomic threat. And then they went on and made his movies interestingby having Godzilla fight other kaiju. And NONE OF US really waxes nostalgic about 1954 Godzilla. We remember the ones where he's fighting other kaiju, not the one where he's just  crushing the city and being repelled by humans.

I had such high hopes for this movie, but it looks like it's basically going to be Cloverfield, Godzilla 1954, Godzilla 1998, and every other disaster film in the past 50 years.

Look, producers: It's EASY.  Godzilla movies are 1/2 disaster movie, and 1/2 pro wrestling with giant fricking monsters. That's IT. You can have your disaster movie crap, but you MUST include the over-the-top fighting. You MUST include another monster, and the ENTIRE last reel of the film should be spent on the two monsters fighting.

Build-up
Arrival
Fight
End

That's it. That's goddamned ALL there is to it, and you had to artsy-fartsy f♥ck it all up and change the f♥cking formula. Goddamn, this is disappointing-looking.


Godzilla is about a psychologically shattered nation trying to come to terms with the fact that something horrifying can come out of nowhere and blast you straight to hell before you can even react.

I've loved Godzilla since I was little, and was disappointed by the 1998 film. Really looking forward to this one.


I really wanted a CGI version of a guy in a rubber suit for that one.

Yeah, but Rinko Kikuchi more than made up for that.

Cheater71: Anyone know if the DoD funded this in any way? Films they get involved in always suck.


I just read the Wiki entry for it and I didn't see any evidence of that. But I did find THIS for the Pacific Rim fans:

At WonderCon 2013, Guillermo del Toro expressed enthusiasm for a potential crossover between Godzilla and del Toro's Pacific Rim-another Legendary Pictures kaiju film-but stressed that no such plans were in place.
 
2013-12-11 03:28:29 AM  

ClintonKun: Have you seen the Comic-Con teaser? Its fairly easy to find. I think it was better than this one. It's incredibly somber and chilling with footage of the aftermath (looks like the aftermath of an atomic bomb) with a voiceover by J. Robert Oppenheimer giving his famous quote.


farking liar.

So youve seen the movie? awesome.

Um, both Godzilla v. King Kong and any movie with Mecha-Godzilla were closer to the second one than the first, and the original Godzilla was  exactly like the second one.

And that's just off the top of my head.  Generally, the kaiju fight was the result of a clever hail-mary plan enacted by devastated characters with a subplot that took up half the movie.  Did you never watch any of the godzilla movies?

floor: ZeroCorpse: Old_Chief_Scott: I know I was just a little kid when the originals ran in the theater, but weren't there a metric assload more Japanese people before?

Whenever we make a Hollywood version of a foreign film, there's this assumption that Americans won't be interested in watching non-Americans (or at least non-westerners) in the same roles.

See: Let The Right One In/Let Me In, Godzilla 1998, The Girl Who..., et. al.

The best example is TransWorld Releasing insisted on editing in scenes starring Raymond Burr into the American release of Godzilla because they thought American audiences would relate to him. They also expunged any references to suffering during the war, because Americans should not be shown in a bad light.

Citation for fun

I have seen both GOJIRA and GODZILLA KING OF MONSTERS, and I have to say that the addition of the
Burr scenes was done pretty well.  They don't make the movie better, certainly, but unlike some of the
later US tinkering it doesn't detract from the film.  It gives the movie a different vibe, though.

Godzilla is about a psychologically shattered nation trying to ...



And there's not a damn thing anyone can do about it. The Japanese in the Godzilla movies have to be the most technologically advanced country on the planet, and they STILL can't stop Godzilla when he decides it's time to tear Tokyo down to the sub-basement level again. I always saw the Godzilla movies as an analogy to humanity in the face of natural disasters; you can't stop them, you can't even really prepare for them, all you can do is try and survive and then rebuild once they're gone. Japan has to deal with tidal waves, earthquakes, typhoons and volcanoes as well as manmade firestorms and nuclear obliteration; it's no wonder they created a genre of "living natural force destroys us" movies.

Including Godzilla vs King Ghidorah? from 1991?

Rising_Zan_Samurai_Gunman: 2wolves: If I'm doing a HALO to surprise an enemy the very first thing I'd do is strap a flare to my left boot leaving a trail of smoke to exactly where I touched down.  It's only logical.

I don't think they were that worried about Godzilla running and hunting them down after they landed. They would probably hear him coming. The flares were more about being able to see each other as they fell through those dense clouds (which appeared to be at least somewhat a smoke cloud) so they don't get tangled up in each others chutes and can stay together.


Then doing a HALO is mindless bushwa.

FWIW I assumed they were trying to land on top of the buildings to create observation posts to call in air strikes? Since the city was apparently covered in smoke and dust clouds. But of course the Big G would be super easy to spot with thermal imaging or radar...
